Real Deals: Las Vegas Casino bargains and promotions

Oct 2, 2012 3:00 AM

October will be a huge month for Boyd Gaming offering players one of their most popular promotions.

The fall cash giveaway, the annual Pumpkin Patch Pick, returns this month with drawings, collect and win and instant win prizes. From now through November 17, B Connected members playing at The Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast and Sam’s Town will have the chance to win their share of $500,000 in prizes.

The promotion begins with the Pumpkin Patch Pick Collect and Win game. After earning slot points when playing with their B Connected card at Boyd Gaming’s four Las Vegas locals’ properties, players can collect game pieces when swiping their club card at kiosks located throughout the casinos to match and win game pieces for a chance to win cash prizes up to $2,500.

B Connected members who have earned points and swipe their card are also eligible for a variety of Instant Winner prizes, including 1 million bonus points, dinners, $50 cash, hotel stays, slot dollars, salon or spa discounts, movie tickets, bowling and other prizes. B Connected members can play up to three times each Friday and Saturday during the promotion.

In addition, B Connected card members playing slots, video poker and table games at participating properties will earn points toward entries in weekly drawings. Card members will also be eligible to earn additional bonus entries based on their card level status. Players must activate entries at a kiosk to participate.

Drawings will be held weekly each Saturday from Oct. 6 to Nov. 17 at 8:15 p.m. at each of the four participating properties. Winners of the drawing will be invited to punch out one of 10 spots on a drawing board, each containing a cash prize ranging from $250 to $5,000. Each participating property is giving away $70,000 guaranteed during the drawings, for a total of $280,000 in cash.

Boyd Gaming will also offer a variety of October specials throughout the Las Vegas Valley. Every Saturday evening the buffets at The Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast, Sam’s Town, California, Fremont and Main Street Station will offer a special Oktoberfest Buffet. Specially priced at $9.99 for B Connected members (non-B Connected member pricing varies per property), the buffet will feature eight traditional German dishes and includes a complimentary bottle of St. Pauli Girl beer. Additional bottles of St. Pauli Girl will be available for just $2 each.

Every Wednesday and Thursday in October, Boyd Gaming’s three Mexican restaurants – Coasta Cantina at The Orleans and Suncoast, and Willy & Jose’s Cantina at Sam’s Town – will offer B Connected members unlimited enchiladas or tacos with bottomless margaritas for just $9.99 per person, plus tax.

On Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 8, The Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast and Sam’s Town will offer point multipliers to B Connected members: 11x on slots and 7x on video poker. (Some point limitations may apply. Inquire where you play.) 

Throughout October, The Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast and Sam’s Town Bowling Centers will offer $1 games, Monday through Friday, from midnight until 8 a.m. In addition, K&K Bowling Pro Shop at each location now offers B Connected members a 15 percent discount.

B Connected members will also receive a 25 percent discount on all wine purchased at liquor stores or gift shops at The Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast and Sam’s Town in October. Club members making purchases of $20 or more at these four properties’ gift shops will receive a special surprise gift in October as well.
